You cannot have missed it : Fashion Week just ended… or should we say Fashion Month?

This season marked the return of physical shows for numerous brands. Paris, Milan, London, New York… All very real places-to-be succeeding one another, bringing us almost back to a pre-Covid era.

Almost ; because it is not really the same anymore. After several seasons of online presentations during which fashion houses took on the unescapable challenge of 100% digital, their ways of communicating has changed and new media trends have emerged.

In a hybrid world mixing virtual and digital, which trends are there to stay? EMy tells all in this Fashion Week special issue.

Earned Media Value

If you are among Estimation Media’s clients and keen on our social media studies, you already know this indicator quite well! As for others, the Earned Media Value (EMV) corresponds to the media exposure value of a brand or a topic. We calculate using the Ayzenberg index, which considers engagement and content exposure so as to allocate them a monetary value.

Media Advocacy

To put it simply, media advocacy is the media’s power of influence on a community and on the rules it answers to. A reporter, whether he writes for print, online or on social media, is followed by an audience whose opinion he has the power to shape. For example, by choosing to discuss a digital show, he can give it legitimacy and, eventually, shake up industry codes.

Défilmé

Less theorized but not any less relevant, the “défilmé”, contraction of the French terms “défilé” et “filmé” was first used by Isabel Marant in an interview by Loïc Prigent. It designates a show streamed in video format and coupled -or not- with a physical event. The word as well as the trend became popular during the pandemic.

The face of New York Fashion Week has changed for good

“Coupled with the decline in print media’s power and the blurring of lines between celebrities and platform creators, influencers now shape how, when and via which platforms we receive fashion news. In turn, brands are turning over their coverable front rows to influencers who may take up just one seat, but whose network of followers can be in the millions.”
